How were the haters bitch-slapped? It should have been on the disk, although this is a welcome (slightly old) announcement.

#3 Posted by OmegaPirate (5522 posts) -

The haters were hating because that's what he said.
We didn't make this stuff up.

If you want to play ONLINE co-op, YOU have to be ONLINE and youll get the patch, which means youll get play the game online with another friend from the second you put in the disc into the tray, Trolls like you thought the patch wouldnt be out till months of the games realease, THATS HOW YOURE BITCH SLAPPED."

*Sigh*

So the game as shipped still lacks online co-op? Yeah, still dumb. Developers should finish making their games before releasing them. Patches should not be used as an excuse for an incomplete product.

Hes picking up the game day 1 as hes said several times...how was he a hater to begin with? This news was stated like a week ago now, and yes its good its coming on day 1 definitely, but there is still no excuse that it shouldn't of been on the disc, especially since I don't know how many times Peter M has said "Fable 2 is finished" or almost finished.

#11 Posted by Keano (466 posts) -

Awesome news. Day1 co-op.

cant wait for fable2

You really thought you could use logic and reasoning with Riddler?

Definitely. It's a slippery slope to go down when you let things like that happen.

As in the 'haters' are all fussing about nothing? Because, before they devs announced this, they said "the game won't ship with on-line co-op". The hater's had every reason to hate.
#18 Posted by crunchUK (5963 posts) -

oh noezzzz we have to wait 9 seconds for a patch!!!! THE HORROR

.... There wasn't going to a patch(day one). There was going to be a week or more without online.
#20 Posted by Kazona (3092 posts) -

Actually this announcement makes me want to give Molyneux and his team a pat on the back. The way i see it, MS probably forced them to release the game without the co-op, and seeing how hard Molyneux and Lionhead have worked on getting a patch out for it on day one... Yea, definitely some thumbs up for them.

#21 Edited by Raiden36O (123 posts) -

personally i dont think its a big deal that they released the game without the online co-op on the disk. I mean its not like they just decide one day to magically make the game appear  on the shelf, im no expert but id asume theres months of pre plannng, production and distribution of all the discs. That all would have been held up and we'd be getting Fable 2 like a month after when we would have got it.

As it stands now the devs used the patch functionality to get there game out on time with all the features instead of deciding to go with months of delays like some you seem to want...

Omg, you people get what you wanted, and now your bitching about it? That makes SOOOOO much sense.

It's not about whether it was on the disk or not. It's the fact that the devs themselves were skeptical if they'd have online ready on release day. That's where the hate comes from. That's why we people think devs should finish their products before release. A patch isn't an excuse for an incomplete game. It's great it will now have everything on release, but it was pretty close to not having it.

Moral of the story:

Don't trust Molyneux.

I didn't care whether it was a week later or a day later. I didn't care if it was a month later. As I said in the other threads about this, I'm more enraged for the principle of the matter, in essence over what LordAndrew's post covered. So don't lump me into some stupid collective, please. Thank you.

Trolling something such as a feature on a game, would mean being linked with also saying the game is terrible and they think it sucks, and have no interest in it...yet he has said time and time again Fable 2 is a day one purchase so no comments towards calling him a 'hater' or bitching and complaining about things are even valid....yes, we're all happy its coming day one, it still doesn't excuse the reason that over a month ago they stated the game was finished, yet somehow this is left out at launch. Anyone with an actual mind knows you and Riddler are the only trolls here, but its not even worth pointing out the obvious, or arguing with people that act like children.

Odd keano that your as offensive as he was yet hes the imature one?

#30 Posted by Cogito (175 posts) -

Even though I can't get on Xbox live right now, this is good news.

#31 Posted by Homes (334 posts) -

Many games, not matter PC, 360, or PS3, shipped incomplete and are patched later on down the line. Adam Sessler addressed this on his latest video podcast. I think it sucks that game developers are pushed to release dates before a game is finished. In this case, Fable II probably should have been delayed a little longer but at least they busted their ass to get the patch out on the day of release (seeing as the game had already gone gold making it difficult to put it on the disk).

#32 Posted by Nemesis (317 posts) -

I don't get it even if Fable 2 didn't have co op, it would still be awesome. I guess people are upset because it isn't on the disk, but if your going to be playing online co op you would have to be online anyways, and you would already get the patch. I think people are just trying to find anything wrong with the game, no matter how stupid it sounds.

#33 Posted by LoZone (148 posts) -

who gives a shit,   this game will be crappy just like the first one.  lionhead and pete m suck major big ass donkey balls.

#34 Edited by Rio (595 posts) -

lol at people still jumping on the bandwagon to blame PM and lionhead for anything they can.  It would be nice if people understood the relationships of developers and publishers, and where date pressure business models come into play.  I think people love a scapegoat, but at least make it an intelligent "blanket-statement" style scapegoat, most of you sound quite ignorant on the subject.   Blaming the wrong people makes you oh-so popular these days......... hell its in the Microsoft handbook.   ;)


EDIT:  ps  Word on the street has it that OXM gave Fable 2 a 9.5/10       No scans yet, just someone leaking scores from the next issue, check around to see when pics surface or if its fake.

Well, well, Molyneux...it seems you have turned the tables on us.

#38 Posted by TheGamerGeek (2499 posts) -

Yea, why wasn't it just on the disk?

#40 Posted by pause422 (6209 posts) -

Actually no..online wasn't an 'added bonus' it was talked about since Fable 2 was first revealed, and everyone knew there would be co-op, no argument covers that fact..don't say we're just getting some bonus because it was supposed to be on the disc to begin with.

#41 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

Sucks that I won't be able to play it in online co-op. Once I get Fable II, I will have to wait for the 21st. Won't have to worry reviewing about it, though, since it isn't in the box.

The game is complete, online is an added bonus and you should be happy to even have it. All patches mean is that they don't have to waste time manufacturing discs with the update and can simply offer it to live users instantly. Stop being an annoying twat and accept the motherfucking BIATCH SLAP.

"
If this game didn't have online co-op, I wouldn't get it. It's all this game really has going for me, and therefore isn't a bonus. It's a SELLING POINT. I'm happy it's at launch, bummed and confused it's not on the disc, but this is far from a slap.

They wouldn't be playing Online Co-Op but there is local co-op option for two players on the same Xbox 360.
#50 Posted by jakob187 (21724 posts) -

Not like it matters.  Online co-op won't save it from being a disappointment that everyone loves.

Fable is like the scrappy diseased ugly mutt at the pound that everyone wants to take home with them.
